If they are not saved as queue files, they are not in the correct format
to be copied to (I assume Postfix's) hold queue.

What you can do is just give them to Postfix as an incoming message. E.g.

sendmail -i -t < quarantined_message_file

which will process the message and presumably just put in in the hold
queue for MailScanner.
